Booksellers and librarians: Edelweiss link
Wild and vivid — a rollicking memoir of romance and rock ‘n’ roll in an era of upheaval and transition. From Los Angeles to Leningrad and back again, Joanna’s story is borne along by her infectious, headlong enthusiasm. It’s quite a ride.

Naumann’s writing is entertaining and authentic. He sings the praises of those who formed his own character as well as embraces their flaws. From the bordellos to the classrooms and from high rises to high on the hills of France and Italy, this story offers a unique and riveting view into the world of art history and the people therein.

Takes a sharp look at the dysfunction of the U.S.S.R., offering details that no one in the West could imagine. […] An important memoir by a fearless man.

As lush with speculative literary history as it is with lyrical prose,
picking its way through the sticky webs of family dynamics and revolutionary politics.
– World Literature Today
